Updated review: With every update adds something cool :) the app works great, and the only problem I've had is not playing playlists on my phone, which was soon fixed with a new update. My suggestion would be to allow channels on the phone, when it is running as remote server because although my phone has internet, my home does not. Oh, and Plex runs great over a local network without internet. Well worth the price!

Waste of $40!

Not able to sync or download playlists. Simple basic function that is offered for free with Google Play. No Customer support at all.

I greatly appreciate how quickly changes and fixes come down from the Plex crew. Really makes me feel like I've more then gotten my moneys worth out of my Plex Pass subscription. The app works great on my Icon, the only problem I had was streaming music, and they had a fix a few days later. Awesome :D

At first the program wouldn't work at all, but after afew updates it now works and it keeps getting better! Im glad to see that a software developer is constantly working at improving the software and removing bugs. It connects with my server and works great!

Pretty good app, don't see the in app purchase.

I think they removed the in app purchase, I haven't seen it. The app is pretty basic but does what it needs to.

So awesome, I love plex great app let's you watch your videos, listen to your music, view your photos and more from your Windows phone and PC with only purchasing the app once. You can get plex on many other devices as well. Roku, Android, Xbox 360, Xbox one yes I'll say the P word ps3 & 4, Samsung smart hub, many other tv brands and TiVo to name a few. There are a few extra features with a plex pass but for me it's way to much. Still great app with great free features. I recommend everyone try it out.

nothing worse...

there is nothing worse than a badly designed program, and unfortunately this is one. It randomly closes video and put me back to video menu while playing. Keeps asking me to log in after logging in last time used. Wants 4.99 when the app says free. I just use the Plex player via Google Chrome for free and much faster. Waste of time. Even bigger waste of time having to warn all of you to stay away from ap.

It just works.

Plex app works seamlessly and is a nice Windows Phone app. It is easy to set up and use. The Plex Pass is worth the money. The only feature I wish Plex server had was the ability to play/pause/record DRM protected cable TV with EPG so it could be a true WMC replacement. The app will, however, perfectly run MCE Buddy converted recordings placed onto the Plex Server, even over a cellular connection.

It keeps getting better

The Plex app is a polished, refined client for your Plex server. The best way to go is to buy a monthly PlexPass subscription and have unlimited access to every feature across every platform. Yes, this app requires a $5 purchase to be considered functional, but the app is well designed with nice graphics/effects and the performance is better than using a web browser to access your server. All in all, it works well and looks good doing it. As an update, now that I am running Windows 10 and the Groove Music app doesn't want to load my library from my Samba share, Plex is the only way to go. Seriously, Microsoft? Network folders worked fine with WMP. Seems like you went two steps backward to go one step forward. But I digress. Bite the bullet, use the Plex app, and get streaming. I have a mix of Linux, Windows, and Android devices and the only good way to view/listen to anything, anytime is Plex. End of story.
